I highly recommend Elite Karate! Not only does Elite specialize in teaching Olympic-style Taekwondo to children, teens, and adults, the World Taekwondo Federation certified Academy also helps youth in particular to develop many of the skills needed to excel socially and academically. I know first-hand! My 12-year-old son has been attending Elite Karate for nearly four (4) years and it has been an awesome investment of time and effort. He has learned so much and it has mostly been self-discipline, stick-to-it-ness, and humility. And this is has been reflected in his school performance. In addition, he has been exposed to student mentors who have gone on to Stanford, Princeton, and other amazing endeavors. And it's obvious that their beliefs, values, and practices have rubbed off on him. And I am watching my son's beliefs, values and practices rub off on others! I could go on but I will stop here. So, give Elite Karate a try! They are an awesome organization of people led by the highly experienced and dedicated teacher, mentor and master of the martial arts - Master Raymond Hsu!
My family used this Karate studio for a year. My 5 year old son at time attended classes every day and was picked up by elite karate's van after school everyday. On June 3rd they picked him up and other students from his elementary school. It was 104 degrees that day. When I arrived to pick him up after work at 5:30 pm, the owner/instructer told me my son was left in the van!!! He said "it's okay was only a few minutes" and never took him to the hospital or called me. He kept saying "it's not a big deal"When I called police and cps and the karate school (Mrs. Mary) told story they said it was over 15 minutes he was in the van! The karate school didn't know he was missing because he fell asleep in the last row, back seat. The only reason they discovered him was he woke up and unlocked van and crossed parking lot into school. Thank the lord. The owner asked my son if his mom dropped him off. They didn't even keep track of my 5 year old baby!!!!! If he had not woke up he would have suffered heat stroke. They lied to me initially to cover themselves. They new he was in a hot locked vehicle over 15 minutes (who knows how long really) and they didn't call 911 or doctor or his mother!!!!! They cared more about covering up story than getting him medical help!!!
We stopped using them but I demanded they give me my deposit or something back to find new school. They never refunded me anything. They never said sorry wrote letter of apology or did anything to show how awful what they did was!!! They only cared about swiping it under the rug!!! I hope someone does something to stop them. They are unsafe and poorly run to say the least!! Do no use them. Do not let your friends and family use them.!!! They hurt my son and were not licensed by cps so cps could not do anything. The cps case worker was so upset she couldn't do more to them. But it is on file with Sapd.
Master Raymond Hsu is a phenomenal teacher. He is equally adept at teaching kids, teens or adults. This is the real deal here. No Americanized, watered-down Taekwondo like you will find in other area schools. Master Hsu teaches Olympic-style Taekwondo, which prepares each student for competitions and for attaining their black belt. His co-teacher, Bobby Healy, is talented and creative. Elite Karate has awesome entertaining and fun summer camps, and has also recently added a very popular after-school program. Both my daugher and my husband have earned their black belts at Elite Karate.
Copa is the best for the widest variety of wines from all over the world that can be paired with great tasting Mediterrean style food. If you are not sure what wine you might like, they offer a variety of "flights" (with great witty names) that help you narrow down your particular taste preferences. It is fun, upbeat, always fresh (new wines coming in to try out!), not too loud, occasional live music, but the kind of place you want to keep on coming back to for an evening of escape and eventually, where "everyone knows your name."
